Hi All,

       I know very little about the "WS- Reliable Messaging". I need few clarifications on this topic. You may feel these are very basic questions, but your valuable responses will definitely help me in understanding WebServices technology to some extent.

1) Does the WS reliability means providing only reliable messaging across web services/applications? Or WebServices can be made reliable by any other means?

2) From WS-Reliability specification, my understanding is, each application needs the logic to provide reliability? Cant we provide a built-in mechanism which forces to implement all the reliability stuff into the architecture itself??

3) Can any one give pointers on Reliability/Reliable Messaging in the context of web services without dwelling much into any specific technology such as MSMQ,MQ Series, JMS??

4) Can any one give pointers on each specific technology(above mentioned) pros and cons over the another??

5)What are the pros if the architecture itself provides reliability related stuff instead an application providing the same?

6)"Reliable" the meaning itself is really ambiguous for me!!! Does it relates to Fault-tolerance, availability, security!!!?? Can any one help me in distinguishing whats the meaning of reliability???

Your valuable suggestion/comments/anwsers would really help me.

Thanks and Regards

prasad
